A brief thought or poem for the weekend, friends ...

Pamela Greenberg's beautiful translation of the Psalms leaves me speechless.

Her version of part of Psalm 27 lives in my heart these days:

Don't give me over to the breath of my fears.

For distortions in the name of truth, they breathe out visions of destruction.

If only I could believe that I would see God's goodness in the land of the living ...

Keep up your hope in God.

Strengthen your heart and sturdy it;

keep up your hope in God.
